Poet or not, every man should own a cord jacket.
For fall/winter Engineered Garments have produced their Landsdown sport jacket in a thick but soft 8-wale corduroy.
The jacket features a peak lapel with tab enclosure, four patch pockets on the front, and is fully lined with a cotton and poly/rayon blend. It comes in olive, navy, and khaki (the ArchBlog fave) corduroy. It's available from Nepenthes in New York.
